  • YouTube App Updated with Live Streaming and "My Subscriptions" Feed


    Google recently updated its YouTube app for iOS, adding a slew of features such as support for live streaming, a new personalized subscription feed and the ability to queue videos for TV playback. The most significant addition to YouTube version 1.3 is its streaming capabilities, allowing users access to future events like the annual State of the Union Address, which has been broadcast on the online video platform for the past few years.

    With the new feature, iPhones and cellular-enabled iPads will be able to tune in to live streams on the go, something that was previously only available via the YouTube browser-based web app. Another thing that was added in version 1.3 is the ability to queue up videos using the app’s “Send to TV” functionality, which connects to Google TV units or gaming consoles’ YouTube apps, effectively turning an iOS device into an advanced remote control.


    Last but not least, a new My Subscriptions feed is available on the YouTube Guide sidebar, granting easy access to recently uploaded videos. The update also provided the usual stability and performance improvements found in almost every update that is released. The release notes can be found below:

    • Quick access to new uploads from subscriptions via "My Subscriptions" feed on the Guide
    • Access to Live streams
    • Queue up videos to play on TV
    • One Channel branding for video creator channels
    • Stability and performance improvements
    The update for the YouTube app for iOS devices weighs in at 10.4 MB and is a free download from the App Store.

      I had problems with the ProTube Extension 1.1.4 so I removed it and don't have any problems right now. Hopefully 1.1.5/1.2 is released soon. I really need to be able to manually change quality.
